Mandy creates masks from recycled materials found within the community and in opportunity shops. Her diverse style has lead to the crafting of Angel Masks, and conversely, ‘Blinged’ War gas masks. Mandy says:
“I can remember as a young child in the 1960s roaming through all the alleyways and arcades in Melbourne and as I held the hand of my mum I looked upwards at all the beautiful treasures and architecture that is in abundance. As a child beautiful objects fascinated me, so when faced with a disability later in life I turned to make art … I really enjoy the challenge to produce something different all the time. I recycle lots of things that I find within the community and opportunity shops. My Dream is to extend my talent and develop the mixed media…in my style and with assistance from the Art Community I believe you are limited only by your imagination.”
